Fabrication and Thermal Property of AlN/ Epoxy Composites


Article Preview

AlN filled epoxy composites were fabricated. The microstructure of composites was observed by SEM. The thermal conductivity was also measured. The results showed that microstructure of AlN/ epoxy composites was different with monolithic epoxy, it had some crystal-like characteristics. The grain size of AlN/ epoxy composites decreased with increasing AlN contents, and the thermal conductivity of composites increased with increasing AlN content. The thermal conductivity of 40wt. % AlN/ epoxy was about 3 times of monolithic epoxy.
